Susan Rice — The Next VEEP?

Susan Rice, who served as President Obama’s  Ambassador to the United Nations and  National Security Advisor, has skyrocketed in the prediction markets over the past few days as Biden’s VEEP choice.

Biden has already locked himself into choosing a woman running mate as does owe the African-American community for pulling his ass out of the fire and saving his candidacy in the South Carolina primary, especially Congressman James Clyburn.

She wasn’t even on the radar a few weeks ago.

When choosing a candidate, the most important question is:  Is she/he presidential timber?  Rice, definitely fits the bill, more so, we believe, than the others on the shortlist.  We like her.

Rice opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In a December 2002 NPR interview, Rice said, “Its clear that Iraq poses a major threat. It’s clear that its weapons of mass destruction need to be dealt with forcefully, and that’s the path we’re on. I think the question becomes whether we can keep the diplomatic balls in the air and not drop any, even as we move forward, as we must, on the military side. … The [George W. Bush] administration frankly owes the American public a much fuller and more honest assessment of what the costs will be of the actual conflict, as well as the aftermath, the post-conflict reconstruction. And the costs are going to be huge.  – Wikipedia

We are going to buy some contracts tonight for a 250 percent return in a two-week holding period.  Good risk/reward.   Beat that, Tesla.

Fluid situation.  Stay tuned.
